NASCAR - The Return of Richard Childress Racing
After two races the Richard Childress Racing teams own three of the top five spots. With Harvick leading and Bowyer in second, many are saying RCR could be the team to beat this year. Jeff Burton sitting in fifth doesn't hurt either. NASCAR.COM asks
1. They own the top two positions in points, and they've had great cars in the first two races. Is Richard Childress Racing the best team in NASCAR?
Some say yes, some no.
David Caraviello: Right now, absolutely, unequivocally, yes. Now, it's too early to know if RCR has improved enough to legitimately vie for the championship, or even make the Chase. But they could have finished 1-2-3 in each of the first two races. That's not a mirage. That's real. They're very, very good.
Bill Kimm: Let's slow this train down, shall we? It's very exciting to see RCR up front and performing the way they are -- but the best team? No way. Until someone knocks Hendrick down a couple of notches in November -- when it matters -- then we can crown a team "the best." But not after two races.
Raygan Swan: In my opinion it is too early to say. Kevin Harvick said last season his first five races were decent and he missed the Chase. RCR is heading in the right direction for sure with the crew changes and going back to a three-car stable, but whether their performance will last beyond Bristol is yet to be determined.
I say it is early, but I am excited for my favorite team. I'm still not crazy about Harvick, but those killer B's - Burton and Bowyer have my support.
